  1. That's fairly common. 200mhz is basically its sleep mode. Even if you so much as move a window or scroll down in Chrome, it'll wake up and jump to 2ghz. If you want you can set the fan curve manually to be more aggressive. Also the torture tests are designed to push it to maximum frequency/temps so don't worry about it. If it reaches 95c it'll throttle down. I've seen it cross 80 even on water, which is even more scary considering water starts bubbling at around 80c. Check the temps when gaming, if it stays below 80-85c then you're fine.

  2. Its amazing watching the meta shift based on PC input while console gameplay continues to be in the gutter. No one gives a sh*t about Last Word, LoW and even slug shotguns on consoles, and they continue to nerf them across the board. Glad I dropped the game when I did because it looks like the continuation of same sh*t.

  3. You could try BenQ EX2780Q. Its 35k so a bit over budget, but it basically ticks all the boxes. 1440p, 144hz, 5ms IPS panel, Freesync, half fake HDR and built in sub woofer. Most 60hz monitors are for content creation so you might not get Freesync or fast response times. The manufacturers all started putting gaming features in high RF monitors in last couple of years.

    hmm yeah

    cheapest 2060 is inno3d/galaxy for 24.5k

    where as sapphire 5600xt pulse costs 26.5k

    then again with bios update they are almost equal if not slight edge to Amd. only reason to go Amd is for future Freesync monitor

    btw iam getting a Rma replaced new 1070 for 15k


    I'd actually suggest dropping 3k more on 2060S and get a decisively better card. 5600XT is great but it really shouldn't have been more than 22k. The BIOS update has also pushed many custom cards to its cooling limit so the OC headroom isn't the best.

    Amd Ryzen 3600 

    Msi B450M Pro-VDH Max 

    Corsair 3000MHz DDR4 16GB 


    Thought of getting 3500 then again i have to spend extra on cooler. so 3600 made sense and also be useful for capture one/lightroom

    Now my final confusion between  rtx 2060 and 5600xt 



    Since the retarded local AMD pricing struck again, the cheapest 5600XT is actually more expensive than cheapest 2060. Its a no brainer really.

    People lost their sh*t when this was announced for the Xbox. I am sure the unbiased folk here will tell you this is just as bad. :giggle:



    People will lose their sh*t if Sony announces that all their PS5 first party games will be on PS4 as well until 2022. But I'm sure unbiased folks here will call it "consumer friendly".

  7. Saw Jojo Rabbit, it was kinda charming and sad at the same time but not that funny. Dunno why people called it a comedy or even satire. Waititi's Hitler completely falls flat in comedy even though he was suppose to be a child's imagination. Heck the Hitler in Inglorious was funnier. The kid was amazing though and so was ScarJo.

    Bruh. what the *bleep*. For some reason I just imagined they would be like Netflix. 


    It is weird but I have pretty much forgotten Stadia even existed. Does it work in India? 


    Hahaha yeah, of all the things Stadia got wrong, none of them would've mattered if it was at least like Netflix or Game Pass. Someone higher up somewhere looked at the Netflix model and thought "what if we make something similar but instead of streaming everything, make people buy individual shows at same price as retail blu rays. People love buying stuff outright that they can only stream."


    I doubt it'll survive long enough to come to India.

    I honestly dont see the point of GeForce Now. 


    If it was a subscription with a set of games, sure that makes sense. But if I already bought a bunch of games then chances are I actually own a computer capable of playing those games. And Steam in home streaming lets me stream inside the house for free. So at this point I am just paying so I can play them on a laptop or something when on the go? And even for that very limited use case scenario, in my experience when you are travelling bandwidth is pretty sh*t anyway. 


    Granted $5 a month isnt a lot but even then, I really cant see every subscribing to this. 


    Its for people like me who have an HTPC with AMD 2200G and keep postponing the upgrades forever and yet keep buying games from Steam/Epic sales. Its a moot point anyway because the chances of GF Now coming here is pretty slim.

    What type of game is it?


    Think of juggle happy combat of DMC where you stun-lock enemies by keeping the combos going, except you "draw" different weapons and defense items on the fly. sh*t gets really hectic once you get in the flow.


    Also if you want Switch version it's better to pledge for $35 right now because its almost guaranteed to be at least $49 when it hits eShop.

    Couple of worries i have with this. One being they don't go epic exclusive for PC at the end of the production like many other publishers did. Secondly, replacing the Wii U gamepad screen functionality for the game.Unlike TMS which had just messaging during gameplay if i remember, this game had more gameplay features on the small screen. Have to see how they'll do that.


    Still looking forward to the Switch version. Was one of the most underrated games for the Wii U. Don't know if i should pledge for it though.


    You can draw with right stick. In fact using the stick lets you build fast/complicated combos that are impossible with touch drawing.
